Old Time Music Cornwall
February is Pete & Ellen Vigour Month. We are very fortunate to have them travel down to Cornwall to perform in the events listed below. Pete and Ellen are very fine musicians and lovely people so let’s give them a very warm Cornish welcome. As an added bonus, they bring the equally lovely Ray Banks with them. It’s gonna be a blast!
There are three very different events on three consecutive days so choose your favourite or come to all three dates to be fully inVigourated. (Sorry)
